Carlos Tevez is content with life at Manchester City and is likely to stay if his family are happy to move there, according to agent Kia Joorabchian.

Tevez handed in a transfer request midway through last season amid reports that he was eager to leave England and be closer to his family who do not live with him, but later reversed that decision.

"It's difficult to talk about offers. Carlos is a big player who will attract big clubs," Joorabchian told Sky Sports News.

Despite being team captain and a key player in the team's surge towards Champions League football and the FA Cup, the Argentinean continued to be linked with a move abroad, either back home to Argentina or to Spain and many observers expected him to leave Eastlands this summer.

His representative Joorabchian has suggested that may not be the case, though, and believes the City skipper could yet remain.

He added: "(But) he personally has had a very good season at City. He's happy with the current situation at City.

"He's sorted out his problems with the directors at City, that was sorted back in December.

"I think it all boils down to his family. If they feel comfortable about moving to Manchester then there's every chance he will stay at Manchester.

"He was one of first to join this project. He had ambitions to get City to the Champions League and win to win a trophy.

"He has helped them do that."
